Settling Cones & Cone Racks

Settling Cone and Cone Racks  are the primary tool for the determination of settleable matter in water and waste effluent.  The process is also used to measure sand content in well water.  Settling is the process by which particulates settle to the bottom of a liquid and form a sediment.  Particles that experience a force, the force typically being gravity or motion as a result of using a centrifuge,  tend to move in a uniform manner in the direction exerted by that force. Settleable solids are the particulates that settle out of a still fluid.  Settling is an important operation for many industries including:  mining, wastewater management, bilogical science and space propellent reignition.

Cones can be purchased individually or in packs of 4.   The cones are made of Polycarbonate are fully graduated externally from the vortex upward: 0–1mL in 0.1mL; 1–10mL in 0.5mL; 10–20mL in 1mL; 20–40mL in 2mL; 40–100mL in 10mL; 100–500mL in 50mL; 500–1000mL in 100mL. 

Polypropylene screw closure allows user to read graduations to zero.  The leakproof plugs makes it possible to easily withdraw sediment.   The recommended method for cleaning is water and detergent and both the cones and rack are autoclavable.  

PLEASE NOTE: The cones and Rack are sold seperately.  Both sold as one each or in packs of 4.  The rack will only hold up to 3 cones. 

Cone specifications are as follows:

  • Capacity:           1000 mL
  • Closure Size:     1.3 cm (1/2″)
  • Top Diameter:  10.6 cm (4-3/16″)
